Kim Cooper

Kim Cooper is an artist, designer and community facilitator, who’s work has been exhibited in Canada & the USA. She is currently based in Vancouver, BC. on the unceded traditional territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations after having studied fine art in the USA and BC.

Kim’s art practice is grounded in our human connection to the earth on an individual and a larger societal level, questioning the human condition, the environment and how (we) art can foster connection and community. She explores her/our emotional response and reaction to situations in society, entagled with history of place and then tries to transform that into a tangible artifact, a physical manifestation of our emotional landscape. She see’s each project as an opportunity to engage people on both intellectual and visceral planes, bringing others into contact with their environment in a new and unexpected way. Her public art practice tends to looks outwards to the physical landscape of society, while her studio practice looks inwards exploring the landscape of self.
